The Hilo average gas price is $3.50, which is three cents more than last week and last month, and 24 cents less than on this date a year ago.

“This Thanksgiving holiday, AAA is projecting fewer travelers to and from Hawaii than last year, but there still is a bump in fuel demand compared to previous weeks,” said Liane Sumida, AAA Hawaii general manager.
